This book provides a balanced, well-researched perspective by prominent African American glaucoma specialists on maintaining the target intraocular pressure. It begins with an historical perspective of blindness from glaucoma in African Americans (1939-2004) by Dr John C. Merritt, MD. Dr Eydie Miller-Ellis, MD, outlines the relevant epidemiology. Screening guidelines for African American patients (Dr Mildred Oliver, MD) and the diagnosis of glaucoma in African American patients (Dr Leon Herndon, Jr, MD) are also carefully addressed.
